Make Goals Specific

read ( words)

Saying that you want to be rich isn't enough. However, when you say: "I want $12,000 two years from now", you have a specific target that you can break down into manageable goals.

You can break that down as follows: $6,000 per year, $500 per month, $125 per week, and $17.86 per day. Now work on getting $17.86 for tomorrow, and then do the same the next day, and then the next day and in two years' time your goal will be realized.

Goals that are quantified and broken down into little pieces within their deadlines are easily reachable.

The same thing would apply to any goal you have. For example, if you want to start investing in Real estate, you will need to come up with some quantifiable goals. These can be:

? Read one book every two weeks for the next three months;
? Read seven different magazines on real estate the following month;
? Attend one seminar on the fifth month and;
? Look to buy one property in month six.

You need to put a number in your goals like read six books in three months or exercise for 30 minutes everyday. This will make your goals tangible and easy to reach because you know exactly what you need to do to reach them.

My name is Catherin Nellissen. I have been organising events and training for over 11 years. I have learned the hard way how important it is to stay on top of what's happening and making sure that everyone working with me knows what to do in a timely matter. I believe that organization is the key to a successful career and life! Over the years, I have created templates that help me and the people that work with me keep on top of our busy workloads and reach our personal goals. I have decided to share my knowledge of time management, hoping to help other people take control of their busy lives and make sure they accomplish what their heart desires. Life's too short ? get organised!!.
